The DIVE4Ag project brings Pacific Northwest middle and high school youth opportunities to explore topics in agriculture through virtual reality and other online activities. Together, Oregon State University’s Precollege Programs, SMILE Program, and OSU Extension 4-H Youth Development Program lead the effort with community partners to implement an innovative Agriculture Distance Education Toolkit to be fully launched next year.
This work is supported by the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative, Education and Workforce Development Program (grant no. 2021-67037-33379/project accession no. 1024985), from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
Our team recognizes the immediate needs of learners and educators in a post-COVID-19 era. We will be deploying agriculture distance education virtual programming for youth in middle and high school, providing professional development for educators, and strengthening connections with agriculture experts and local farmers. These opportunities will become available to you soon and included in our calendar of events.
